'Like playing a man' as Serena bludgeons Schett to reach last 16

PARIS (AFP) - Defending champion Serena Williams (news - web sites) showed no mercy to Austria's Barbara Schett, crushing the Austrian 6-0, 6-0 to power into the last 16 of the French Open (news - web sites) women's singles.

Serena, who has won the last four Grand Slams in a row and who had dropped only eight games in her opening two rounds, was even more dominant against 57th-ranked Schett, blasting her off the Philippe Chatrier centre court in just 40 min.

Even without playing anywhere near her best Serena was far too good for a hopelessly outwitted Schett, who said she felt as if she was playing a man.

"She hits her shots harder than any of the other girls - yes, you really could say it's almost like playing a man," said the 27-year-old from Innsbruck after failing to make it into the fourth round for the third time.

"Whether you lose 6-0, 6-0 or 6-2, 6-2 it doesn't make much difference.

"From the first point to the last she put me under so much pressure, she moved well and I couldn't finish my points. I had no rhythm at all - but I have huge respect for her," Schett readily conceded. :)

The 21-year-old Serena next meets 16th seed Ai Sugiyama of Japan, who swept past US 18th seed Meghann Shaughnessy 6-1, 6-4.

Serena won the opening set in just 21min, producing nine outright winners to just one for Schett, and the pattern continued in the second as she tore through against the former world number seven, smacking down three aces in the process to offset two double faults.

"I just played really good today. Barbara and I normally have a tough match," grinned a bright orange-clad Serena, who ecstatically blew kisses to the crowd before heading off to sign autographs courtside.

"Today was just my day. Hopefully, I can keep it up."

Serena made a rare gaffe at a recent tournament in Miami when she said, in a joking aside, that the French were more interested in haute couture than joining the American war effort, in reference to France's refusal to join the conflict in Iraq (news - web sites).

But there were no signs of ill-feeling here and she explained she is never happier than when she is in the French capital.

"I love the Parisians. France is my favourite country - besides home of course!" :)

It is not that outrageous a remark. Serena hits the ball extremely hard, I would guess as hard as some of the guys on the ATP tour. Martina Hingis's remark was derogatory, aimed at insulting Amelie's physique. Barbara's remark was just a fact.

that is so true, but how serena played today, she played even better when playing against Davenport, and linsday was competeing very well at FCC. Serena just really outplayed her. As much as a lot of you are avoding this fact. Serena played well, yes not that well, but it was good enough to beat Babsi Shett. Had she played the way she played in FCC cup first set against Davenport, Babsi would've been gone the same score but probably in 30 minutes and not 40. It was about Babsi competeing. Serena wasn't really letting her into the match to compete. Like serena said, today was her day. And when Serena is on, Linday Davenport as you saw, couldn't only win 1 game off her :rolleyes:

I congraduate babsi on what she said, it is the truth. When you watch serena, when she is on, she hits the ball the hardest on the tour. Consistently and everything. No Joke.

you guys act as if these professional athletes are given the questions they are gonna be asked, and sit down and figure out an appropiate answer for them so that the nitpicking assholes at message boards will be satisfied. thats not how it works. they dont have time to sit there and think about an answer like we can on a message board. its off the top of the head, in front of the press... much more difficult.

grow up, get over, move on... life will be a lot easier with thicker skin and more tolerance.

Amanda, Babsi meant nothing derogatory to Serena with her "almost like playing a man" comment. Babsi said that in awe of Serena. She didn't say it to knock Serena. She respects Serena and is probably in awe of her.

To say Serena plays like a guy is a compliment, especially in the context in which it was said. Babsi simply stated that no woman comes close to Serena in sustained power in all aspects of the game.

how original asshole, Schett/shit, oh, I can't stop laughing.

Your small little brain couldn't think of something more original could it? asshole?

Desiring someone to die?, well I don't know Barbara Schett, but as far as I know she hasn't done anything to deserve that, even if she lost a tennis match, are you going to kill everyone that loses a match?

but a fucking psycho like you?, someone that wishes someone to die because she lost a fucking tennis match is a dangerous fucking psycho, and if somebody should piss off and die is you fucking idiot.

I hope somebody beats the shit (shit, what you are) out of you and maybe you would realize that a fucking tennis match isn't more important than a life, except if is YOUR OWN pathetic life.

If someone wants to call Schett Shit, does it have any bearing on your life? Schett probably doesn't even know this site exists. No need to get personal and insult each other because YOUR DUMB ASS thinks you're right. Agree to disagree or do like the other 17,893 members of this board did and not respond to this thread!

I think it was actually Lindsay who said that about Amelie (Martina said "maybe she's half a man"?) Lindsay clarified that she meant it as a really big compliment and I think Schett probably did too. I mean, if the media is speculating (however stupidly) that Serena could compete against men because she is so strong, then maybe it does feel like trying to play a man for the less powerful women. Stupid way of putting it though. Then again, they're tennis players, not nobel prize winners.

Dawn, I didn't mean all Williams fans, I said some, and I didn't include you and many others.

what I was meaning is that I so many of those fans that always moan about the double standards posting here and having fun after that outrageous post, Kim or Justine fans are not accusing everyone of double standards at every chance they have, so all what I meant is that next time any of those fans accuse someone of double standards I will remind them how they ignored this. As I said, it doesn't apply to those (the majority) that are not crying every time they can when the name of Venus or Serena are mentioned, or even when they are not mentioned and they remember that V/S weren't treated the same way blah blah.

For the record, if someone had, said that about Venus or Serena, or Davenport or Capriati (4 player I don't like), I would have reacted the same way, DunkMachine is a pathetic cartoon of a real person.

shaking my head at people refusing to see that BABSI was complimenting SERENA! there is absolutely no disrespect or bad blood. I saw an interview yesterday with Babsi on Eurosport and she is truly a VERY KIND PERSON. Serena is playing very good and to say that SERENA PLAYS like a man is a great compliment.

She did not say that serena looks like a man or acts like a man.

btw, some of you who are so upset, like Dawn Marie, claim to be liberated women but you cannot see that comparing a woman to a man in some aspect like her tennis is not insult. There is nothing inherently wrong with a woman being compared to a man or a man being compared to a woman.

I would love being compared to JUSTINE for example.

I agree, it doesn't make sense that she would first be all negative about serena, and then say that she has great respect for her...

and she didn't say serena LOOKS like a man, so there's nothing wrong with it anyway... (I mean: when someone says to a girl that she has the power of a man, she can only take that as a compliment, no?)

I hope somebody beats the shit (shit, what you are) out of you and maybe you would realize that a fucking tennis match isn't more important than a life, except if is YOUR OWN pathetic life.
LOL.speaking of psycho's :rolleyes: would you puuullleezzz learn how to read or take your medication.First of all,I'm not a Williams or Schett fan,and if you had bothered to read my other posts you would have seen I was complaining about Schetts pathetic play,and her pathetic answer as to why she got her ass kicked.Now don't bother me again!

Wow! So much negative emotions. And on a message board. I fear to think what would happen if you guys exchanged your views face to face. That would probably make the Tyson-Lewis pre-match conference look like a Hare Krishna gathering.

'Like playing a man' as Serena bludgeons Schett to reach last 16

PARIS (AFP) - Defending champion Serena Williams (news - web sites) showed no mercy to Austria's Barbara Schett, crushing the Austrian 6-0, 6-0 to power into the last 16 of the French Open (news - web sites) women's singles.

Serena, who has won the last four Grand Slams in a row and who had dropped only eight games in her opening two rounds, was even more dominant against 57th-ranked Schett, blasting her off the Philippe Chatrier centre court in just 40 min.

Even without playing anywhere near her best Serena was far too good for a hopelessly outwitted Schett, who said she felt as if she was playing a man.

"She hits her shots harder than any of the other girls - yes, you really could say it's almost like playing a man," said the 27-year-old from Innsbruck after failing to make it into the fourth round for the third time.

"Whether you lose 6-0, 6-0 or 6-2, 6-2 it doesn't make much difference.

"From the first point to the last she put me under so much pressure, she moved well and I couldn't finish my points. I had no rhythm at all - but I have huge respect for her," Schett readily conceded. :)

The 21-year-old Serena next meets 16th seed Ai Sugiyama of Japan, who swept past US 18th seed Meghann Shaughnessy 6-1, 6-4.

Serena won the opening set in just 21min, producing nine outright winners to just one for Schett, and the pattern continued in the second as she tore through against the former world number seven, smacking down three aces in the process to offset two double faults.

"I just played really good today. Barbara and I normally have a tough match," grinned a bright orange-clad Serena, who ecstatically blew kisses to the crowd before heading off to sign autographs courtside.

"Today was just my day. Hopefully, I can keep it up."

Serena made a rare gaffe at a recent tournament in Miami when she said, in a joking aside, that the French were more interested in haute couture than joining the American war effort, in reference to France's refusal to join the conflict in Iraq (news - web sites).

But there were no signs of ill-feeling here and she explained she is never happier than when she is in the French capital.

"I love the Parisians. France is my favourite country - besides home of course!" :)

Well, THAT proves how beautiful Barbara is on the inside as well as the outside!!!

Also, what Serena said, "Barbara and I normally have tough matches" -just another example of how fair and considerate Serena is :)

Unless it was meant as tongue-in-cheek, I took Schett's comment as a compliment towards Serena.

Yet another comment blown way out of proportion and context by overzealous Williams fans! If Schett had said that Serena's shots were so strong that it felt as if she was playing say... Juan Carlos Ferrero, would you guys take that as a diss too?

you people have issues. this was a huge compliment from babsi. she was saying that she plays like a man, and hence is as good as some of the men. it had nothing to do with her physique or anything, she was saying what an amazingly powerful player she is.

i have really lost respect for a lot of williams fans from this thread. a lot of you guys must love being the victim so much that you can't even take your favs being praised anymore.

very said situation.

switz it isnt just Williams fans. When Lindsay said that Amelie 'hits the ball like a man' at the Aus Open it was considered an insult to Amelie.
